Insight Guide Malaysia is a comprehensive full-colour guide to the culture, history and people of this varied and fascinating country. It is illustrated throughout with hundreds of new, specially commissioned colour photographs. Our inspirational Best Of Malaysia section illustrates the country's highlights, from the dazzling architecture of dynamic Kuala Lumpur and the World Heritage Sites of Georgetown and Melaka, to the natural splendours of Mount Kinabalu and the largest orangutan sanctuary in the world in Malaysian Borneo – making sure you don't miss anything.
Our unrivalled coverage of history, landscape and culture provides an essential introduction to Malaysia's colonial past and recent developments, as well as its astoundingly diverse geography and melting pot of people. The informative text, written by regional experts, is a pleasure to read and accompanied by stunning photography.
Lavish magazine-style features offer a unique insight into the country's famed street food and traditional bangau – ornate sailing boats – as well as the longhouses of Sarawak, Borneo, where an ancient way of life continues.
All major sights are cross-referenced with the maps, and the travel tips section provides a wealth of practical information on how to plan your trip, as well as carefully selected hotel and restaurant listings.
